This truck is one of 11 units bought new by New Zealand Cement Co. for their new works at Cape Foulwind near Westport. It was then sold in 1977 to Graeme & Raymond Atwill, lime producers at Scargill and then in 1981 to N.C. Forbes of Isla Bank. Bill Richardson bought it from Mrs Forbes in July 2004. After many years sitting in a shed it fired up within seconds of pushing the button.
This was one of 6 bulk cement tractor units, and the other 5 had semi tippers for carting coal.
